TSCA Reform

TSCA Reform

REGISTER

1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern US Time

Legislative reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) is likely to occur this year, but passage of TSCA reform legislation is by no means certain. The Senate version, S. 697, enjoys broad bipartisan support and invites sweeping changes to TSCA regarding chemical testing, information collection, confidential business information, and preemption. The House version, H.R. 2567, retains much of TSCA but proposes important differences. Other pending legislation is also being considered with varying degrees of Congressional interest.

While it is difficult to speculate as of this writing what a new law might look like, one thing is certain: chemical manufacturers and their downstream customers will need to adapt to a new domestic chemical management program if TSCA reform legislation is enacted, and stakeholders will need to step up and engage in the regulatory implementation of the new law.

The panel will address the following topics:

  • The status of pending TSCA reform legislation;
  • Overview of key Senate and House provisions;
  • Impact on chemical manufacturers and downstream users;
  • Forthcoming rulemakings designed to implement key provisions;
  • Consequences of failure to enact TSCA reform; and
  • Overview of key state legislative initiatives.

Please join us for this timely discussion on TSCA reform and its impact on the chemical value chain.

How It Works

The 90 minute session is interactive and you will be able to submit questions -live- to our esteemed speakers - via computer during the session. However, please note that since this is a discussion and not a formal presentation the only visual elements will be the information contained herein.
You will receive confirmation of your registration via email.
A separate email sent a (business) day before the webinar will include a toll free dial-in phone number and access code to dial into the seminar. It will also include the Internet address and login instructions to access the webinar.
At the time of the interactive session, you will call into the toll-free number via phone or speakerphone and log in to the special website. You will follow the presentation on the web; the Instructors will manage the timing and page changes of the presentation directly.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions at specified times during the presentation. All participants will be able to hear both the questions and answers.

Single Connection: $99.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $50.00

A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.

By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.

If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $50 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.

CANCELLATION, REFUNDS & CREDITS
Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
